Health & Nutrition - - JUST LAUNCHED -

My hus­band has just re­tired from the mil­i­tary, and has al­ways been very fit. But now when he gets up in the morn­ing, he is un­able to keep his feet on the floor – he ex­pe­ri­ences se­vere pain and cramps. Please help! Anita Nayak, Mum­bai Your hus­band may be suf­fer­ing from a con­di­tion called plan­tar fasci­itis with as­so­ci­ated pe­riph­eral nerve com­pres­sion in the fas­cia. Usu­ally, wear­ing of ex­tremely soft footwear, mas­sage of the plan­tar fas­cia, stretches for the foot mus­cles, rolling your foot over a frozen tin can help. If th­ese do not help, then see an or­thopaedic sur­geon.
